Default Re: How to avoid rehashing elements from the Nolan Trilogy

I get what you're saying.

Some might think that it's a sequel to TDKR (Batman "dying", and 'rising'/resurrecting/being reborn at the end with Blake).

This would probably feel even more this way if it was titled "The Dark Knight Reborn".

However, I think a new actor, a new look, and a trailer/dialogue that shows some 'origin' stuff ("Yes father, I shall become a bat"), and the resulting PR will make people aware that it's a reboot.

Batman 'Reborn' would then emphasize this, letting the audience know that they're getting something new and fresh; it almost sounds proud that it is a reboot, and not The Dark Knight 4.
